Using a Trackable Link to Share on Indeed/Glassdoor's Paid Postings

Generating a trackable link allows you to track your incoming candidates from any external job site.  Here is how you can set it up with Indeed/Glassdoor's paid postings.

How to create a trackable link

Here are the steps to generate a trackable link:

  • Click "Openings" on the left bar of your Trakstar Hire screen

  • Your openings dashboard will display. Click on the name of the opening that you are looking for the unique job URL of:

  • The opening details will display. Choose the tab that says "Candidate Sources" in between Job Details & Workflow, and you will see the Application Link URL there:

If you would also like to track clicks from a certain location on this job URL, you can use the "Share a trackable link" option to connect a source to candidates who apply via the created link.
For example, if you enter "Indeed" in the share a trackable link window, you will notice that "?source=Indeed" is added to the end of the job URL, and the source for any candidates that apply through this modified link will be recorded as "Indeed":

You must click the blue "Copy trackable link" button in order for the source you typed to be saved as one of the sources that you are tracking across your candidates. 

How to share this link on Indeed/Glassdoor's paid postings

In order to use your trackable link on Indeed's website, you must have:

  • An Indeed employer account
  • Have this feature enabled by your Indeed account executive

Not sure who your assigned Indeed account executive is? Reach out to Indeed directly:

  • Via web: From within your Indeed Account directly here, or from their public web form here
  • Via phone: 1-800-462-5842. 

Once Indeed has enabled this feature in your account, you can follow the directions above to generate your trackable link.  

Create a new paid posting on Indeed. When prompted with "How would you like the candidates to apply," select "via an external site," and add in your trackable link.  This will direct candidates to your Trakstar Hire application form for applying to your roles, and properly track their sources, too!
